It's the year of the pioneer
One thing to be thankful for: this season is a little roomier, a little more relaxed. It’s also a little bit country. Western-inspired fashion isn’t going anywhere, but who’s complaining? Pioneer women everywhere, this is for you.

Knitwear + denim
Easy-going denim. Hella-homely knits. Mixed together or doubled up, we’re just glad to see our slouchy Sunday favourites having their moment. You go guys.
This isn’t the time for stuffy suiting: look to Miu Miu’s combination of relaxed tailoring and retro checks.
Raf Simons puts Western back on the map at Calvin Klein 205W39NYC (Mary Agnes in Godless deserves a shout out, too), delivering his version 2.0 in high-shine metallics. Relaxed rodeo: it’s a mood.

The tonal checks, the relaxed shapes, the full sleeves: these dresses are as easy to wear as a T-shirt.

The hooded coat
Little Red Riding Hood, but make it fashion. Once a practicality point, now a hot topic – sometimes, you really can have both.
Looking for more from your denim than an indigo wash? Try blown-up Americana landscapes on for size. The kind of pieces that sit snug between sensible and wonderfully outlandish.
